SEO and the Web Filter Bubble

I’ve mentioned this sort of thing beforecustomized, personalized search results based on what engines and websites think you want to see. Which means that everybody’s search results are different. Which means that you can never know just exactly where you will show up for any individual person’s search. And so far, there’s not a damn thing you, as a search engine professional, can do about it.

This is what will kill SEO. And the web. And probably everything else we hold dear.

    I’m optimistic! If Google take that route, then a plucky little startup that doesn’t pretend to know better than its users – possibly founded by me – will come along and decimate the competition. 🙂

    LOL! Good idea. Imagine a search engine that returned relevant results….. and nothing else. It would be a revolution!
